Welding—-Melting, Pressing, Hammering

Here is a history of welding. At the bottom of that history are other welding related links.

Here is a definition of welding from Merriam-Webster

Join together (metal pieces or parts) by heating the surfaces to the point of melting with a blowpipe, electric arc, or other means, and uniting them by pressing, hammering, etc.

Sometimes we hear about concepts and themes of unity and connection. Such talk might conjure up images of peace and cooperation.

It is not always that way.

Sometimes things are brought together by—”melting with a blowpipe, electric arc, or other means, and uniting them by pressing, hammering, etc.”
